Welcome to Senior PsychCare Website

Older adults have special physical, emotional, and social needs. Understanding this, the geriatric psychiatrist, with a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and psychotherapists (LCSW, LPC, PhD, and Psychiatrists), takes a comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment.

This includes listening and responding to the concerns of the older adult, helping families, and when necessary, working with other health care professionals to develop effective approaches to treatment.

A comprehensive approach requires assessing cognitive deficits, underlying depression and anxiety, co-existing medical illnesses, medications, family issues, social concerns, and environmental issues integrated into a comprehensive program of care with the Nursing Home Staff, Borrell Cognitive Neuropsychiatric Inventory (BCNI), and Neurologist Assessment. Call us at 713.850.0049 to learn how we can help.
